Refurbed 1965-1970ish tractor radio

Postby radioguy41 » Sat Jun 06, 2020 3:05 pm

Automatic Radio made a lot of tractor radios but this model is unique. First of all it's both AM & FM, which is unusual for the time. Second, it's the only model I've seen with an AM/FM slide selector below the dial. All the other models I've seen have a switch to the right of the tuner knob. There is no model identification anywhere on the cabinet or the chassis. Anyway, I refurbed it which included repairing the dial, replacing the dial light, cleaning of the chassis inside and out, recreating and replacing the facial insert, replacing the weatherstripping on the cover, repainting the base, and generally cleaning and polishing everything.

Nice radio, don't ever recall seeing one like that, either.
